BEHIND THE ART
Hello! This is me, Brianna....the artist behind the lens!! I have a pretty interesting story that got me to where I am today... As you may have already learned I clearly have a passion and love for photography and little people! I think everything is beautiful in one way or another. I grew up with the love and fascination for art. I was that kid in class drawing while the teacher was giving lectures. I was a dreamer and would spend months on one drawing to make it perfect. I was involved in school plays and loved anything that had to do with using my creativity and would stretch my mind and my dreams. Out of high school I moved to Los Angeles to jump-start my acting and modeling career.
I was contracted into SAG and AFTRA (Screen Actor’s Guild) and landed a national KIA commercial. That role quickly pushed me to get more involved in shows and movies such as; “That 70’s Show”, “Christmas with the Kranks”, “Holiday Heist”, (Nickelodeon) “Gigantic”, Jennifer Anniston’s double on “Friend’s With Money”, FHM magazine, and more but I’d rather not bore you to death! Being on set was a key role into my career today. Spending hours on set understanding light and production was invaluable to my craft and skills today. With all of that going on I started to go to school for web-design. Fortunately, I did not finish what I was originally going to school for. I found myself drawn and fascinated with photography. After I had my second child, I decided to dive into photography head first. It was something that started as a hobby and blossomed into a career that I thrive on today. It wasn’t until I photographed my first newborn that I realized this is what I want to focus my energy on until I retire one day. Newborns are such a challenge. I have learned a lot about myself photographing these little beauties. I love a good challenge and this field definitely gives me that on a daily basis. The feeling I get when my clients see their images for the first time of their precious newborn in their arms skin-to-skin, is something I live for in every session I do. Your child will never fit in your arms like this again. These are not just photographs…these are memories that will become more and more valuable as the years pass. I take pride in being a part of this special time in your life. Watching these little beings grow before my eyes is such a joy to my heart and soul...
